Toshiba and their first Chrome OS-powered laptop is now available in the U.S., where it will feature a 13.3-inch display, running on an Intel Celeron 2955U Haswell processor, carries 2GB RAM, and sports a 16GB solid state drive (SSD). You will be able to pick up this Toshiba Chromebook at a price point which resides somewhere in the region of $280 a pop, depending on the retailer that you decide to purchase it from. Adorama happens to sell the Toshiba Chromebook for $280, while those who prefer to do their online shopping from Amazon will have to fork out $288, and picking it up directly from Toshiba.com would cost you $300.
Other hardware specifications for the first Toshiba Chromebook include 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a couple of USB 3.0 ports, a webcam, HDMI output, an SD memory card slot, a 1366 x 768 pixel display, and a 52 Wh battery. Apart from that, each purchase of the Toshiba Chromebook would be accompanied by 100GB of cloud storage on Google Drive, where this storage space will be free for a couple of years. We have spent some hands-on time with this 13.3″ Toshiba Chromebook over at the recently concluded CES, so you might want to check out what we have to say about it before arriving at your purchase decision.
